Beautiful rug and a good value. The pattern on the picture is accurate, but the acutal color of the rug I would not describe as "ivory." The background color is a sage green tinted beige. The over all coloring with the light greenish background and gold-yellow pieces works great with earth tones. The description listed red as an accent color. When I ordered this rug I didn't see red in the picture so I was hoping there would not be red in the rug and there wasn't! It's more of a burnt orange or rust color. This rug works great with a burnt orange couch I have. Very happy with it and I will probably order it in another size.
